Pia RafflerWelcome. I am an Assistant Professor of Government at Harvard University. I am interested in the political economy of local governance, in particular in Sub-Saharan Africa. My research focuses on political oversight of bureaucrats and implications for public service provision in local governments in Uganda. It has won the Best Fieldwork Award and an honorable mention for Best Graduate Student Paper on African Affairs from the American Political Science Association. I use experimental, quasi-experimental and qualitative methods to measure causal effects and seek to disentangle the underlying mechanisms. I hold a Ph.D. in Political Science from Yale University.
